I want to create a filestream enabled SqlServer database using NAS server as the storage. I already passed the creation of DB step. Look at my previous question Creating SQL Server database with data and log file on synology NAS Server. I can create an ordinary db but couldn't managed to create filestream enabled DB. Is it possible to do this?

I didn't used Filestream enabled database before. Recently I had to install one for a document tracking and archiving software. I wanted to put the db on nas server because I don't have too much space on server harddisk. After some research I found out even I can put data and log files on nas I can not create filestream enabled database using nas so I installed totally on server instead. "Thank You" for Whom Who Viewed my question.
